he said the cat will get electrocuted and that dust will get in there, but would dust get in there/ build in there with the case ON?

Yes, but a heck of a lot slower. And you'll probably still find cat hairs in there, even with the panel on. Also, the panel is there for a reason.

I used to leave both my side panels off my intel p4 for some damn reason even when i had proper cooling that friggin chip was just still too damn hot so i left the cases off more air flow and no more random shut downs i dont have any pets but since you have pets i wouldnt recommend taking it off due to more things can go wrong

pets are curious creatures and will jump inside trying to play with something in your case cats im pretty sure they would bat at the cpu and most certainly meet a 9 life doom so yes keep it on dont worry about too much cooling if you have a prebuilt system

While your dad's off to work drill some holes in the side panels and cover the inside with air conditioner open cell foam filter material.

Naw.....On second thought maybe you better ask him first!
